Texas GOP pushing for at least 1 armed security guard in every school
A few months into Texas’ 2023 legislative session, Republican state lawmakers have been narrowing their list of priority bills to pass into law. Near the top of their list? Putting at least one armed officer inside every school in the Lone Star State.
House Speaker Dade Phelan has placed extra emphasis on a bill that would require every school in Texas to have an armed officer on campus and would also allocate $15,000 annually per school for additional safety measures, according to the Dallas Morning News’ Talia Richman.
